You say this is an EPIA, are you using the Unichrome driver?
If so, only the modelines built into the driver will work, and you must
match those names.
It sounds like you are not using a modeline that has overscan. The
driver should have a mode "720x480" with no overscan, which is what it
sounds like you are using, and "720x480Over" that has "normal"
overscan. If you are using a newer version of the driver, it will also
have "720x480Noscale", which I use, that has only a little overscan,
and turns the scaler off. There are also "640x480" and "640x480Over"
If you have the Unichrome source, the list of mode names are in
Hope that helps.
